A former Certis Cisco security officer who accepted $10 from an MRT passenger in return for turning a blind eye to her drinking water in a station was jailed for a week yesterday.

Kalaiarasan Muniandy, 22, caught Indonesian maid Hasna, 34, committing the offence within the fare gates at Paya Lebar station and told her she would be issued a summons for $300.

He wrote down her particulars on a checklist then asked her to call her employers to the MRT station to pay the "fine".

Hasna, who goes by one name, apologised and replied that she was unable to pay the sum as she had only worked for a few months.
